Papua Explorers Resort is located in the heart of Raja Ampat, which is on the northwest tip of the Bird’s Head Peninsula of West Papua. Most famous dive sites of Raja Ampat are on our doorstep within 10 to 30 minutes boat rides. At Papua Explorers, you won’t have annoying,  long boat rides for hours to get to the dive sites, pay extra to dive at Dampier Strait or be limited by the number of dives you can do at these sites. You have the freedom to choose from more than 50 dive sites around us.

Papua Explorers Resort is constructed using traditional Papuan construction methods and local, natural materials. Our water bungalows are designed to be in perfect harmony with the exotic surrounding, allowing the guests to feel the breeze from the rainforests, enjoy the songs of the tropical birds and soothe their souls with the flutter of the waves. Our 300 m2, over-the- sea restaurant and lounge is designed to offer a relaxing environment to enjoy various international and local dishes freshly prepared in our restaurant and to refresh and relax between the dives.

The little peninsula that Papua Explorers Resort is located on is home to the endemic Red Bird of Paradise. This unique bird and it’s amazing mating ceremony can be observed after an early morning hike in the rainforest. This is also an excellent way to observe the amazing plants and creatures of the rainforest.
